Ways to Find Epic Blog Writers for Your Site

Any blog requires a lot of time and effort spent on it to become popular.

However, when a blog becomes popular, this doesn’t mean that you need to work less on it: on the contrary, that’s when a real job begins.

You need to meet the expectations of your audience, offering them interesting and unique content.

You also need to keep in touch with your readers both in the comments to your posts and on social media.

Moreover, at the same time you need to write good emails and provide your email subscribers with some kind of an exclusive content.

And don’t forget about guest posts: if you want the readers to keep coming to your blog, you have to write a lot of them.

All these tasks require a lot of time, and even if your blog turns into your main source of income, the amount of work can still be overwhelming. That is why some bloggers decide to turn to blog writers for help.

A good writer can handle part of your tasks (or even all of them if you want), creating high-quality content of different kinds. They have both leader’s skills and talent and can make your blog even more popular. However, just as with many other professionals, a good blog writer is hard to find (especially if you don’t have any experience with it). That’s why I’m here to help you, offering 5 best ways to find the most epic writers for your blog.

1. Invite guest bloggers

If your blog is already quite popular, you can offer guest post option for other bloggers. Such option benefits both sides: guest bloggers get an opportunity to promote their own blogs and to attract new readers, while you receive interesting well-written content. This doesn’t mean that you have to stop writing your own posts, of course, but your readers will have something else to read your updates.

The important thing here is to write correct guest post guidelines: otherwise, you might find yourself in a situation when you have to spend hours reading and re-reading others’ posts, making edits, and so on. Be sure that you mention everything that is important to you: the number and size of images (if they are allowed), whether you allow backlinks or not, what kind of content you accept, etc. This will simplify your work greatly. However, do not forget that you’ll still have to spend some time approving guest posts and answering emails from bloggers who have some questions and offers.

2. Find freelance blog writers.

If you have a certain list of requirements and a certain budget, you can try looking for blog writers on various freelance websites like Upwork, Fiverr, etc. You can even hire a few writers if you want the content to be more varied. What’s even more important is that you should be able to specify the budget along with the requirements when you post a job offer. This can quicken and simplify the whole hiring process greatly as only the writers who agree to what you can offer will reply to your job offer.

3. Look for a blog writer among your readers.

It’s good to hire someone who not only has leader’s skills and a talent but also admires what you do. This way it would be easier for a writer to adapt to your writing style. Moreover, when a person likes what you do and understands your niche, they can come up with new topics for a blog easier as well as suggest new bright ideas too.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to choose the first writer who agrees to create content for you. Make a contest or assign them a test task: this will help you to assess their skills and abilities better. Don’t rush with your choice: after all, this person will be working for you for a while.

4. Think about inviting the niche experts.

While this sounds challenging, it’s actually quite possible: you only have to be persuasive enough. If you manage to persuade a niche expert, you’ll receive high-quality content and will be able to build a useful connection too. However, it’s important not to sound too pushy.

That’s why think well before you make your offer. Try to come up with some arguments about why they should write for your blog, how it would benefit them, and so on. Remember that you are more interested in their services than they are in yours and so try to do your best!

5. Look for writers on social media.

If you already have well-promoted social media accounts, you can use them to find a perfect blog writer who works in your niche or is interested in it. Post a detailed job offer (which has to be just as detailed as the one for freelance website) and encourage your audience to share it. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to quickly find a writer who likes your blog and can create interesting content for you.
Don’t forget about LinkedIn too: it’s probably the best and the biggest social media for professionals of a different kind. There you can find not only people looking for a job but also the ones who are currently working but are open for proposals. That’s why it’s more convenient than Facebook or Twitter, where a writer’s reply could be seen by others.

And don’t forget: if you want to find the best writer, you have to make the best offer. Make your proposal clear and detailed, prepare a test task beforehand and be ready to spend some time on interviewing your potential candidates, looking through their portfolios, and checking their test articles. Maybe it won’t be easy but it’s a good thing: the more offers you receive, the higher are your chances to find a perfect writer for your blog.

I hope that these tips will help and I wish you good luck with finding the right candidate!
